Great little theater in historic Hartford. Interesting seating policy - open seating but for a small fee you can get reserved seating. Don't know if reserved seating is actually worth it.... I specifically asked for aisle seating and they said no problem.. Got there, we had reserved seating, but not on an aisle (6 seats in)... no bad seats in... More

My husband & I have been to TheaterWorks in Hartford a couple of times now. with friends and alone.

There is ample parking just across the... More

This is a very interesting theater in the heart of Hartford. It is small and therefore intimate and you can see the actors plying their craft up close. Last year, we attended a performance of The Other Room which was exceptional well done. I had seen the play on Broadway with Laurie Metcalf (she deserved a Tony for her performance).... More

Have only been a series member for one year and enjoyed each play. The theater is small so you have a chance to see the actors up close . The plays are well selected to fit the space and all have been fun and interesting with good casts. Once you have paid for the series you can select the days... More

Had a wonderful time here, a bar restuarant and movie theater in the same location is the greatest idea.

The excellent productions come alive in this intimate setting. The directing is outstanding. Many plays start here and end up on Broadway.

After reading some reviews of "Freud's Last Session" by Mark St. Germain at the theaterworks, we decided to go on a Saturday afternoon. We were glad we did. The play depicts an imaginary meeting between Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis late in the life of Freud after he had fled Vienna and settled in London in 1939. The meeting takes... More

My first reaction upon leaving Theaterworks’ highly entertaining world premiere production, Christmas on the Rocks, was why hadn’t someone thought of this idea before now? Director Rob Ruggiero asked seven playwrights—John Cariani, Jeffrey Hatcher, Jacques Lamarre, Matthew Lombardo, Theresa Rebeck, Edwin Sanchez, and Jonathan Tolin--to take iconic Christmas characters from holiday themed movies and television classics and reimagine them as...

Christmas on the Rocks was an entertaining and funny performance by 3 very skilled actors, playing multiple roles. You'll never think of Cindy Lou Who and Charlie Brown as innocents again. It was lots of fun. The theater itself is in a small, imtimate setting. Located in the lower level of the building, there are no bad seats. Unlike most... More
